when i was younger i always drew inspiration in the early 90s as a kid looking at the pics of victor richards, probably for just a huge gym build and overall physique, i would say better than a bodybuilding physique bc competition wasnt his focus, great old school guy.

Park park,

Can you tell me the major differences between stripping and an IFBB competition?

The way I see it, in both they:

...Need to be very physically fit/muscular

...Need to know how to pose

...Dance on stage douched in baby oil

...Get down to nothing but a thong

...Get judged by a panel of peers and industry insiders

...Get the most money based off of the level of both presentation and overall performance

...Have a crowd of either cheering men, women or both applauding their favorite "guy"

...Sometimes go home with an audience member for a little extra money

...Go home with a plastic trophy

...Have their pictures posted up on internet forums, as well as magazine covers (Flex, Playgirl etc.)

Do you know what the differences truly are?

stripping is a respectable profession


I wholeheartedly agree.

In his best condition ever he would not make top 10 in any Mr.Olympia line up, in fact Rich Gaspari beat him on stage weighing a whopping 50lb less that is how shitty Victor is on a stage.

People forget gym pics mean nothing. Dennis James is king of gym pics and would easily make Victor look like his little brother and you know what happens when he jumps on stage and he is not even as chubby as victor.

You just made a complete retard of yourself for 2 reasons; 1 that is Ronnie in that pic and 2 Vic was never over 315 and a very fat 315, the pics of him are mostly of him at 260. Dennis dwarfs him in every angle and is way bigger muscle wise

Ronnie at his peak destroys Victor. Victor was never as ripped as Ronnie and his torso is too long with high lats insertions. His midsection stood out because it did not flow into the upper body.

Ronnie has that WOW factor that Victor did not have. He was big but not in the same league as Ronnie.

I can't see Ron being much bigger than Vic, i mean they were 2 different body types where Vic is extremely stocky with a long torso and Ronnie has a slighter frame with an X shape. Vic was built more like a block, didn't have the genetics required to satisfy the judges need for aesthetics. dude was without a doubt a freak.

 funny how people downplay him so much and try to put their thumb over him. anybody on here ever see the guy in person?? just for some  clarification

Bro the bottom line is when kovacks turn pro he was over 300 on contest day, was 365 with abs, his arms were fucken huge and yes I have seen Victor R, Ronnie, Markus, Gunter and no one and I mean no one comes close to kovacks.

Now imagine he never competed as a pro, the whole world would be saying he could have been Mr. Olympia, everyone would, the hype he was generating was outrageous. I remember reading an article in Musclemag saying Kovacks is going to the NOC and he will win that and will head to the Olympia at 340lb shredded and that he will make evryone look small. Go look at his pics of him at 365, he looked good, looked proportioned and was fairly lean, but brother contest day is a whole knew ball game, it is night and day. Plain and simple.

^^^ EXACTLY claimed the whole thing was a huge set up and that is why he never competed in the pro ranks, he was a sore loser. He was making 4000 per appearance so he had it made financially and generated enough publicity as the uncrowned Mr. Olympia, in fact when he gave speeches he would always have the attitude that if he stepped on staged it would be over for everyone and people bought into this.

Even far after he ruined his build he still looked insane in the off-season, bodybuilding is the most mysterious thing on the planet.

I remember seeing him at a show down here and I looked at his arms and I was like WTF, the biggest arms I have ever seen, I mean these thing were fucken way bigger then my head, I swear, enormous. Then 4 weeks later he is competed in the Arnolds and when I saw the pics, I thought WTF ''where did his arms go" I mean they looked like they were 17 inches and a month earlier they had looked to me to be close to 24-25 inches.

This is why pics by oneself means jack in contest shape and pics with people in the off-season mean shit also. All that counts is standing in a line up shredded with everyone else exposing all your weaknesses and the ligfhts not forgiving any bodyfat you have left.

I am 250lb here, standing 5'9 in 2008, we are talking at least 8 years after his all time freakish 400lb off-season look

In the gym, Vic Richards was the champ, he was made for mass

In contest shape, and I don't mean Mr Nigeria, I mean on a pro stage, to come in sliced he wouldve been under 250, possibly even 230

And still, wouldn't have beaten labrada, ray, gaspari, taylor, definitely not flex nor yates, haney

At best, he may have qualified for the olympia

He made the right choice, remain a freak, with the "what if" tag

You think Victor Richards is the greatest bodybuilder? Really?
Hmmm, ok, what is his contest record as a pro? zero, nada, nothing.
Granted Victor  was an impressive guy to see in person, but as a bodybuilder he has no actual pro record.
To turn pro he won th Nigerian national championships, which isn't a top tier amatuer show, c'mon.
Saying he is the greatest bodybuilder is like saying some guy who never played in the NFL is the greatest football player.

Well, here are Vic's secrets.

"Victor Richards, better known as Vic Richards or Mr. Big is the most massive bodybuilder to ever live weighing in up to 370 lbs. at 5’10″ tall.  Vic eats 8,000 to 12,000 calories per day and believes that adequate carbohydrates in his diet is the key to getting really big.  Vic works out in the morning on an empty stomach, and after his workout he eats 16 oz. of unsweetened applesauce mixed with whey protein powder to feed his muscles.  He takes an hour nap after his workout to rest and let his muscles repair.  During a typical day Vic eats 3 pounds of brown rice, 25-30 chicken breasts, 75-120 egg whites, 10-12 cans of corn, and 5-6 cans of pineapple.  Victor is a fan of being one’s best and not comparing one’s self to others."

Vic would probly make Phil disappear if he ever walked in front of him on stage lol

And I thought the argument here was that he was one of the biggest bodybuilders ever, not the best looking. no matter how much people think he looked like shit guy was still fking huge. ahead of his time.

As if Heath has never beaten bodybuilders bigger than he.

Richards won't step foot onstage. That would actually require him being ripped, which could spell trouble for him.

Besides, how can we get a good measure of how big he really his, relative to other bodybuilders, when he's almost always in off-season mode, while standing next to bodybuilders, fresh off a contest?


Richards gets the flak he does, because he constantly criticized IFBB pros, while not having the guts to step onstage against them. As I recall, there was little fear of Richards. On the contrary, a number of bodybuilders couldn't wait for him to compete, so they could beat him and expose him as being little more than hype.

Indeed, I was. Richards was being hyped for years. He got a pro card, by winning a contest that (as far as I know) was not a pro qualifier prior to his entering the show and hasn't been one, since then.

American Muscle claimed that Richards entered that show, because he wasn't a US citizen. But, it turns out he is; but, he's a dual citizens of Nigeria and the USA. He claims that he entered the Nigeria show, because the politics of the NPC wouldn't have allowed him to turn pro, by winning the USA or Nationals (couldn't he have won the North American, run by the IFBB?).

No the CFL analogy is silly here becuase the CFL guy is actually playing in a pro football league.
Victor never competed in any pro show or even a high level NPC show.
If Victor competed in NABBA we would have actual contest condition pics and stats.

he never competed as a pro and his myth will always be bigger then reality would have.

Bro the bottom line is when kovacks turn pro he was over 300 on contest day, was 365 with abs, his arms were fucken huge and yes I have seen Victor R, Ronnie, Markus, Gunter and no one and I mean no one comes close to kovacks.

Now imagine he never competed as a pro, the whole world would be saying he could have been Mr. Olympia, everyone would, the hype he was generating was outrageous. I remember reading an article in Musclemag saying Kovacks is going to the NOC and he will win that and will head to the Olympia at 340lb shredded and that he will make evryone look small. Go look at his pics of him at 365, he looked good, looked proportioned and was fairly lean, but brother contest day is a whole knew ball game, it is night and day. Plain and simple.
kovacks arms ... not a fan of.. its shape and density that makes the arm...
not stretching a tabpe around it...againt kovacks  frame his arms didnt look big... shape and insertions sucked... lacking peak.... etc

...yes, guys, it's true, Vic Richards was very critical of bodybuilders, but if you wanna' talk about sheer freak appeal...well. Went up to see Dr. Jekot one afternoon, some of the older members here may remember that name. In his waiting room were Rory Leidulmeyer(sp?), the Barbarians...and Vic Richards. His size was unbelievable, guys!  It was one of those things where you just go-"it just doesn't make sense!"  His quads were super gigantic...nobody in that room was anywhere near his size..and he's only like 5'9"'!  So, yeah, dreams unfulfiled and all that, but when you are talking about an immense fucking freak...in person, Vic was(is) definitely that!

Dexter Jackson has a long torso and high lats. He won. Problem is that Nigerians have very thick skin. See Beyeke. Same thing. His physique his the perfect powerful physique. Dude could do a damn vacuum at his size.  Had he been able to get into Coleman 98 condition, then he would have been a multiple Olympia winner but would have, could have, should have.

No not where it counts, from the front high lats are not the problem, it is from the back where the problem lies because having high lats means you will have a weak lower back. Dexter has very low lat insertions from the back, it is only from the front that he has high lats which does not qualify as a bad thing in bodybuiding terms if his lower back has low insertions, what people fail to realize is the your lower back muscles are also your lats.

As for torso another feature that can not be compared to Dexter as Dexter's long torso is not as dramatic as Victors. So those feature would most certainly hurt Victor and as well as the thick skin as you mentioned, so overall even if he got peeled he would not do well on stage,

Vic was built more like a block, didn't have the genetics required to satisfy the judges need for aesthetics. dude was without a doubt a freak.

 funny how people downplay him so much and try to put their thumb over him. anybody on here ever see the guy in person?? just for some  clarification

Bro, you are only as good as how ripped you can get, everything else counts for nothing. I stage marshal over 100 shows and I always see someone who is jacked, I mean 20 inch arms, thick torso, enormous legs and he ends up in 5th place in the heavyweights and the middle weight takes the overall, yet this guy if only he lost another 15 pounds would smash everyone.

We have seen his best conditioning and it would not make a posedown at a cheesy tier 3 show. the stage lighting makes you look softer always, I see guys backstage that look ripped and when they go on stage, I am like WTF this guy is smooth as shit. The stage is a different ball game and nevermind standing next to some with striations everywhere . We can sit her and say well  "if he got ripped" but that is the point he couldn't, that is all she wrote, or else we would have seen it.

i was always a huge fan of Vic's. Dude was a freak no doubt, but he didn't have the desire to compete. so what?

his physique was great, but unrefined. he was paul dillett with a work ethic.

but compare an offseason current Kai to Vic at any point and they're similar.. Kai's probably better. But, given Vic's knowledge, or lack thereof, and lack of a 'coach' at the time to tell him what to take and how, he did great with what he had.
